My life goes on in endless song
Above earth's lamentations,
I hear the real, though far-off hymn
That hails a new creation.


Through all the tumult and the strife
I hear it's music ringing,
It sounds an echo in my soul.
How can I keep from singing?


While though the tempest loudly roars,
I hear the truth, it liveth.
And though the darkness 'round me close,
Songs in the night it giveth.


No storm can shake my inmost calm,
While to that rock I'm clinging.
Since love is lord of heaven and earth
How can I keep from singing?


When tyrants tremble in their fear
And hear their death knell ringing,
When friends rejoice both far and near
How can I keep from singing?


In prison cell and dungeon vile
Our thoughts to them are winging,
When friends by shame are undefiled
How can I keep from singing?

    We - any of us - who discover our true selves (love/peace/joy) and who truly, truly believe in God=Love, can know no fear, but only joy. Or, as the Buddha put it, Enlightenement is the end of suffering. Every single mystic who ever lived has, as far as I know, agreed utterly on this simple idea, this fact, this ultimate truth...because it was within each of them as it is within each of us, and within every human that ever lived.
